IPhone emergency service helps rescue pair after crash in southern California forest

Published:

Two individuals who crashed their automobile off the side of a mountain in California’s Angeles National Forest on Wednesday were rescued using the emergency satellite service on their iPhone 14. 

The Los Angeles Sheriff Department’s Montrose Search and Rescue Team tweeted a picture of first responders on the crash site and video showing the helicopter that was capable of hoist the pair out of the distant Monkey Canyon. 

“This afternoon at roughly 1:55 PM, Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station received a call from the Apple emergency satellite service,” the team said. “The informant and one other victim had been involved in a single vehicle accident on Angeles Forest Hwy near mile marker 18.87, Angeles National Forest. Their vehicle had gone off the side of the mountain, roughly 300 feet. They were in a distant canyon with no cellular telephone service.”

The victims were capable of extricate themselves from the automobile before they used the emergency satellite service on the iPhone 14 to speak with a relay center via text message.

“The middle contacted our station who dispatched us, Los Angeles County Fire Department, patrol units and [the Los Angeles Sheriff Department’s Special Enforcement Bureau] Air Rescue 5. The decision center gave us an accurate latitude and longitude for the victims,” the team continued. 

Air Rescue 5 was then capable of locate the victims and “insert a paramedic,” who learned that the patients had mild-to-moderate injuries. 

The patients were a girl and man of their mid-20s.
